Are We There Yet?

I think I can tentatively say that this is finished - today I can't see anything major that needs doing, but I will give it a day or two and come back to it to check that I haven't left anything out!  Acrylic portraits like these are very much hard work, but I do enjoy them so.  Although having concentrated so hard for so long, using tiny brushes and painting in every hair, I think my next painting needs to be something big and splashy!
Yesterday was glorious, so I took my daughter to pick strawberries - this is one of our favourite places to go in the summer.  Not only is is so pretty, in the middle of nowhere... also get to come home with these:
I look like I've gone ten rounds with a wild cat after picking the gooseberries, but it was so worth it.  I've also eaten so many strawberries over the past fortnight it's a wonder I'm not turning red, but that's all part of the great British summer!

Currently on the needles: flowers!

Yum, I can't wait for my black gooseberries to be ripe enough to make jam. Fab jam. :-) I love strawberries and that looks like a lovely place to go. :) However today it was all rain except for the five minutes this morning when I woke up. :-(
